Time sure does fly. I can't believe it's been a YEAR since I published my FIRST post over here. Now, three blog designs and 365 days later, here we are. 

Since a lot of people think blogging it's just something silly and narcissistic (because you keep posting pictures of yourself and write about your travels and new purchases), it is hard for them to understand that blogging is more like building your own brand. Though, I still have a long way to go, I am so happy I finally listened to my friends and followed my gut to start this adventure. 

One of the best benefits of blogging is when you learn something new every day. From fighting with html, CSS and the overall blog design, through working for hours on the best post possible, to learning how to grow your audience and connect with your readers, it's a very humbling experience. 

Because first, you have to believe in yourself. Then it takes devotion and hard work, and through it all , you still need to remember not to take yourself too seriously. Because if you lose fun in blogging, there's no point doing it anymore. 

I can honestly say it's been a great year, and I am so happy I'll always have this little space I can share with You, my readers or what I think is a better description - friends.

So thank You for being here. You make it all worth it.

And cheers to a great learning experience!

Thank You for stopping by!

Throwback Thursday: VENICE BEACH, CALIF.

Good morning! I hope you are having a great week so far! It's Thursday, so we are that much closer to the weekend, YAY! Nevertheless, it is snowing again but since March (and hopefully spring weather) is approaching, I thought it's time to throw it back to California again. Also, in about a month I'm scheduled to visit my dear friend in the golden state, and I just can't wait!
That being said, I've been scrolling through old photos and came across the folder with photos from Venice and immediately wanted to share them with You!

So here it is, Venice in all its glory: boardwalk, muscle beach, palm trees and all! Enjoy!




I guess living by the beach wouldn't hurt...

OSCARS 2015: Ceremony

Now that I showed you my top fashion picks from the red carpet HERE, let's talk about the actual ceremony! This year's host is no one else than a wonderful Neil Patrick Harris who always makes for an awesomely elegant and funny gentleman! The Oscars opening was an absolute hit, I may or may not have watched it a few times, it was so good! Anna Kendrick and Jack Black made for great side kicks, so funny!

To watch a whole opening number, go HERE.

The Best Supporting Actor award went to J.K. Simmons for his role in WhiplashI have not seen the movie yet, but it is certainly high on my list to watch.

One of the musical performances of the night was brought to us by Adam Levine and his band Maroon 5. Performing the song Lost Stars from a movie Begin Again, in which Adam made his cinematographic debut, I gotta say it was not one of his best live performances...

And how adorable was the director Pawel Pawlikowski's speech?! So cute!

The night is just getting better and better! The award for a Foreign Language Film went to a  Polish
production IDA and I could not be more proud! This is such a big moment, especially that a dear friend of mine is starring in it as well! I cannot stop smiling!!! 


I have to admit, I'm not a fan of a country music, but Tim McGraw nailed it singing a Glen Campbell's song  I'm Not Going To Miss You. So classy!

Haha gotta love Neil Patrick Harris's scenes! Anybody who saw Birdman will recognize this reference to the movie. Sooo funny!

And to throw Miles Teller from Whiplash (and on drums) in the mix?! Brilliant!

And speaking of Miles Teller, he must be one of my favorite actors of my generations. On stage with another favorite of mine, Margot Robbie, they make for beautiful young talents! Bravo!

Also, go HERE too see a close up of Margot's beautiful dress. Stunning!

And the Best Supporting Actress award goes to....

 Patricia's great speech definitely vowed the crowd, take a look at Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lopez's reaction...

And the longest standing ovations after John Legend and Common's performance of a song Glory from the movie dedicated to the great Martin Luther King titled Selma. No wonder because couple minutes later they won an Oscar for the Best Original Song. Congratulations!

What a sweet moment between Idina Menzel and John Travolta! For anybody that knows about Travolta's biggest flop at last year's Oscars, when he introduced introduced Idina on stage with her totally made up last name, here's a spoof.. At this year's ceremony it was Idina who got to give John a new name, clever! As you can see, no hard feeling between those two!

And now we are down to three of the biggest awards of the night!

The Best Actor: 

Best Actress: 

and The Best Picture goes to...

Congratulations to all the winners!
